As authorized by Code Section 16.20.540, angle loading permit may be granted by the City Traffic Engineer to facilitate the loading/unloading of vehicles.


Consent from affected property owners may be required.

When angle parked, the permittee must be actively engaged in loading/ unloading the vehicle.

In the case of a tractor and trailer combination, the tractor may be required to be removed and parked separately.

Permit must be clearly displayed on each vehicle, as designated by the permit, when loading/unloading the vehicle.

Permittee may be required to provide signage at the permittee’s expense.

Emergency access to the area must be maintained.

Permit remains the property of the City of Portland and must be surrendered upon demand by any authorized officer.
